Summary

“Seele’s tireless efforts to remove disparities in health care—and wherever we need more understanding and acceptance—is nothing short of inspirational.” —John Hope Bryant, Chairman, Operation HOPE 
 
“Stigma” is a simple two-syllable word, yet it carries the weight of negative and often unfair beliefs that we hold about those who are different from us. Stigmas lock people into stereotyped boxes and deny us all the right to be our authentic and whole selves. Public health activist Dr. Pernessa Seele, one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Persons in the World in 2006, has crafted a proven method to address stigma. This powerful book confronts stereotype development, shows how to undo the processes and effects of stigma, and explains how we can radically change cultural thinking on the individual, interpersonal, and societal levels to put an end to stigmatization once and for all. 
 
“Pernessa’s book can make a difference in your life. In a powerful way, it gets to the heart of a complex issue. Many people stigmatize others without realizing it, and Seele helps readers understand what they can do to change their attitudes and actions.” —Jeff Pegues, Justice and Homeland Security Correspondent, CBS News 
 
“In sharing cogent reflections based upon her pioneering experiences as a courageous health advocate, Pernessa Seele squarely identifies the societal toll taken by stigma and stereotyping—and delineates the steps we can take to reaffirm the dignity we each innately possess by virtue of our humanity.” —Natalia Kanem, MD, Acting Executive Director, United Nations Population Fund

    This bundle consists of interrelated books about the following fascinating topics: 
    Book 1: People have been using the term “gifted” in different ways, and it’s important to know what the differences are of those terms. You will learn more about those terms and their meanings. 
    Book 2: Gifted children are typically a bit more advanced in their thinking, but they still need to be taught how to apply that intelligence towards practical goals. This is where problem-solving skills come in. 
    Book 3: In this brief guide to giftedness, we will assess and critically examine the results of IQ-tests and their significance. We will also look at the homework problems many gifted children face, with their particular set of grey matter, and why schools often fail to meet the needs of those same children, because let’s face it: 
    Book 4: Who are you? No, not your profession or your sexiness, but your personality! 
    Although we can all learn to behave a certain way, everyone has a certain tendency and energy about them. Everyone has a different personality type. But how do you find out your type? 
    Book 5: Some people get older and never grow up. Others are very mature for their age. How can you determine when someone is really emotionally mature? 
    Book 6: Many people have tried to do so, and few understand the real secret. Emotionally intelligent people go through life much happier. They understand how to react, and they have more control. Thus, it’s essential to your cerebral development to have some degree of comprehension of this principle. 
    Book 7: You may have heard of emotional intelligence. You may have even learned a little bit about it. This audiobook, however, can take you to the next level of understanding what to do with the neural processes in your brain.

    This is a 3-book bundle, which addresses various subtopics, including but not limited to these: 
      
      
    Book 1: The enneagram can show you your personality type and also help you how to live better. 
      
    When you know what you are like – and believe me, many people don’t know themselves very well – you are more likely to be content in life, find success, discover hidden talents, avoid pitfalls, and become happier in general. 
      
    In this book, the enneagram will show you your true colors. 
      
      
    Book 2: When the nine different personality types clash, or when they show some differences, it can be tricky to know how to interact with others.  
      
    That’s where this guide comes in. It will discuss the various ways in which our careers and values are different. It will teach you how to become a happier person by doing what you were meant to do. It will summarize what personalities consist of and how they are made the way they have been made. These are just a few topics to feast your soul on, while discovering more about yourself and those around you. 
      
      
    Book 3: I’m sure you have heard of the enneagram model for personality types, but what does this mean for relationships, leadership, conflict, and other issues in society? 
    Well, that’s exactly what we are going to explore today. This guide will touch on the very essence of relationships, which is actually a mix of personality types interacting with each other. Apart from this, topics vary from leadership, mastery tools, high-conflict personality types, dating, and millennials to attachment and communication in relationships. 
    I encourage you to find out for yourself what your personality type means in your everyday life by studying this short guide and expanding your comprehension.
